You think 3D causes problems??? HA! I went to work for a
company once that had a great logo. The image was red;
the company name was non-repro blue. Talk about problems!
Copying, faxing,... The company name just disappeared.
Now *that* was a logo with a problem!

product's logo, and I had to try to create the desktop icon ... using only the 16-color icon palette...
